This book rocketed author Fredrik Backman to world-wide fame, and deservedly so. It's the story of a man whose wife has recently passed away, and finds re-connection thanks to a group of zany, concerned neighbors. Backman employs a fable-like simplicity in style, and the book is filled with insight into belonging, family, friends, as well as humor and warmth. This book was the basis of a wonderful movie of the same name, and Backman has a new one out, Anxious People, which I'm looking forward to reading soon. Ove is highly recommended!
